As I posted earlier, I’ve joined with Harlequin to bring you some romances throughout the year. Right now I’m part of the Investigator tour (mystery with some romance) and the Believer tour (faith and romance). I have to say that these are my cozy reads. Growing up I never would have thought that I would enjoy Harlequin romances, but when the world is crazy and life is stressful and I’m feeling down, I like to read about people who hold onto their faith and love others and have things work out. It’s that simple.
Here’s how Harlequin explains them:
Out of this group of stories, I read Her Hometown Hero which dealt with a young man returning from war and his healing process. I felt it had a good message about the challenges of PTSD and getting help for those struggling with it. Here’s the overview:
HER HOMETOWN HERO by Jacquelin Thomas (on-sale Jan.25, Harlequin Heartwarming):
Can a wounded hero let go of the past? Wounded marine Trey Rothchild has returned to Polk Island. People call him a hero, but will he ever feel that way after losing his team? Reuniting with high school crush Gia Harris buoys his spirits. Though she’s focused on making her physical therapy clinic a success—and avoiding romance with patients—Gia can’t bear watching the former athlete sit on the sidelines of life. Could helping Trey recover include loving him fearlessly?
About JACQUELIN THOMAS: Jacquelin Thomas’ books have garnered several awards, including
